DOT/NHTSA RIN: 2127-AL90 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Update Child Seat Data in FMVSS No. 208, Appendix A-1 

This notice would amend Federal motor vehicle safety standard (FMVSS) No. 208, Occupant crash protection, to update the child restraint systems (CRSs) listed in appendix A-1. These CRSs are used by NHTSA in air bag suppression and low risk deployment testing. This rulemaking action only seeks to refresh an existing list of CRSs and reduce the burden on vehicle manufacturers to meet FMVSS No. 208 using child restraints that are no longer in production.
